Put It Away

Why is this phrase so hard to understand?

When I see the deer in the headlights look in my childrens' eyes when I utter this verbiage I wonder if maybe, somewhere, back in their developing minds an idiot savant is reasonably questioning me thinking, "Where is this unreachable place, Away, that you speak of?"

Sometimes, I just want to ram their heads prop open their eyeballs ask them how they can possible live here and still not know where Away is.

From (28th definition for "put" under verb phrases)

put away - to put in the designated place for storage

I am going to print signs in the largest font an 8x11 can handle, laminate them, and place them on every wall in the house:


Then I am going to have to draw little pictures in crayon for my non-readers.

"Oh, look Flower, Mommy mad that in RED crayon. She must really mean it this time."

The Devil's Masterpiece

Abortion: The Devil's Masterpiece

A few weeks ago, I visited Leroy Carhart's partial birth abortion mill in Omaha, NE and beheld for a few uncomfortable moments a totally repulsive center of human wickedness. Just looking at the dilapidated former car repair garage turned into baby-killing factory and the squalor of the entire surrounding area, I could not help but notice that the evil of abortion degrades everything that it touches.

Abortion is not only a social plague; it is also the spiritual negation of God's entire plan for man's happiness and eternal welfare. Whenever God says "Yes" to life and fertility the devil yells a resounding "No!"

Abortion's spiritual power is its perfect violation of all the commandments.

First of all, most abortions are the result of sins against the sixth or ninth commandments (adultery/fornication/lust). Abortion is certainly a sin against the fifth commandment prohibiting murder. Likewise, it violates the third commandment because the vast majority of babies are killed on abortion's heaviest business days, Saturdays (the Sabbath). Abortion is also a reversal of the fourth commandment where father and mother "dishonor" the child in the most heinous way and, in doing so, curse the holiness of God (second commandment) which is manifested in the only creature made in His "image and likeness."

As a false religion, abortion is a violation of the first commandment forbidding the worship of any other gods but the Lord, and this religion is undoubtedly fed through a highly sophisticated system of falsehoods and deceits (eighth commandment) which lead women into the abortion chambers.

Furthermore, abortion literally steals (seventh commandment) both our personal and national futures by depriving us of children! Anyone concerned about the present immigration issue should remember that the presence of more than 40 million Hispanic immigrants in this country tracks the destruction of 47 million of our own children by abortion since the Roe death decision.

The saying, "nature abhors a vacuum" is as true in demographics as it is in physics.

Finally, the tenth commandment (coveting our neighbor's goods) is about the capital sin of greed, the very thing that drives so many of the abortionists to do the killing work. Abortionists often claim to hate abortion, but they love the money behind it.

Abortion is like a huge spiritual vortex of sin pulling people into it, and even the Church can be compromised by this evil too. Most of the sins listed above are sins of commission, but the Church's sins are generally sins of omission, which abortion inspires - the terrible silence of the clergy on this topic, heretical "Catholic" politicians who are never disciplined by bishops, the easy justification of abortion by Catholic educators, the moral compromise by Catholic medical personnel on abortifacient contraception and sterilizations, etc. I am sure the devil just laughs and pats himself on the back when he sees the Church, that has the spiritual power to undo "all his work and all his empty promises," sitting back and pretending that abortion is a non-issue.

All of this is to point out that abortion is a spiritual power that negates God's plan for love, life and the family. It not only destroys bodies but destroys souls, which from the point of view of eternity, represents the devil's greatest masterpiece of evil.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

I'm having a garage sale this weekend. My husband has been helping even though he's working three 12 hour shifts this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

While it's nice to get rid of this stuff, it sure is humbling to see how much crap we've amassed. We take so much for granted in this country.

"The Worst Week Ever!"

For the Wobbers, that is. Poor kid is having a rough time.

Within this week he has broken his elbow and managed to come in contact with what we thought was poison ivy. Baseball practice started this week too, so he is only able to sit and watch.

Lucky for him (Ha!) the poison ivy turned out to be stinging nettles, which only hurt and sting for a day and leave a little itchy rash instead of giving you a rash with blisters and sores for weeks.

Another happy boy note....the cast on his arm is "glow in the dark". If you gotta have a cast, at least it's a cool one.

Gotta run. My Lovey is very upset with a fever right now. Rats.
